The front of a large building

York Regional Police encourages business owners to consider these important safety tips to help safeguard your property:

  • Invest in video surveillance equipment
  • Plants in front of doors or windows should be no higher than three feet to ensure criminals can't hide
  • Ensure trees and plants surrounding your business do not interfere with lighting
  • Ensure the address on your premises is clearly marked and visible from the street
  • Install an alarm system
  • Install security film on windows and glass doors
  • Put in good quality doors and a high-security deadbolt lock
  • Install a latch guard and security hinges
  • Install glass-break and motion sensors
  • Remove any loose bricks or rocks around your property that can be used in a break in
  • Ensure employees and patrons have a clear and well-lit path from the parking lot to the business
  • Install perimeter fencing with a gate if possible
  • Mount signs indicating you have 24-hour security and an alarm system
